Everton vs Liverpool Prediction & Betting tips
It starts again! During the week there was a restart in the English Premier League with two catch-up games and these offered quite a bit of discussion material. This weekend all teams are now involved in the action, the 30th matchday is on the program. The focus of interest is the Merseyside Derby between Everton and Liverpool.
In theory, the Klopp team could already fix the championship on this matchday. There will be no jubilation pictures in Goodison Park, however, because “chasers” Manchester City will only be in action on Monday evening and should the Guardiola team win against Burnley, the championship will be postponed.
Head coach Carlo Ancelotti’s hosts are currently in the middle of the league, but could even flirt with the Europa League with a strong finish. Initially, however, only the derby counts and a point win would be a success. The game starts on Saturday evening at 19:00 p.m.
In the meantime, the toffees have got rid of any relegation worries. It was a big surprise that the club had to deal with this topic at all. Once again, large investments were made in the summer to close the gap to the Big Six. However, head coach Marco Silva did not go as desired and during the advent season he had to vacate his chair.
The fact that the Toffees can participate financially in the top league was also shown by the fact that none other than Carlo Ancelotti was presented as the new head coach. The former Bayern coach and Champions League winner is to achieve Everton’s ambitious goals. In the meantime, the club has played twelve competitive games under his leadership and can look back on a slightly positive 5-3-4 record.
There was a clear upturn, especially at the beginning, but Everton was unsuccessful three times before the long forced break. In the last Premier League game, Ancelotti suffered a violent 0: 4 defeat at his former club Chelsea (2009 to 2011). Nevertheless, the seven point deficit in seventh place is quite manageable.
Another glimmer of hope is not only the good head-to-head at Goodison Park against the Reds, but also the fact that the Ancelotti team will compete on home turf. A look at the statistics reveals a striking weakness away at the twelfth place in the table. 25 of the 37 season points were earned at home.
It is also striking that the defensive is much more stable. 15 goals conceded in home games, face no less than 31 in foreign places. Only 36% of the home games ended with a successful bet on the over 2.5 (league average is 52%).
27 wins, one draw and one defeat – Liverpool dominated the strongest league in the world at will and had the great chance of winning the earliest championship in the history of the English Premier League. But things turned out quite differently and at times the Reds had to tremble for the championship despite their incredible lead. Again and again there were reports that the season should be canceled.
However, these fears did not materialize, so the fans only had to wait three months longer. And what is three months in relation to 30 years? 30 years ago, the Reds achieved the last of the 18 championship titles to date. The end is in sight and you don’t have to wait long before the championship is also mathematically fixed.
The lockdown lasted 105 days and at the press conference Jürgen Klopp made it clear that he and his team had been looking forward to starting again from day one. With two wins against Everton and Crystal Palace (on Wednesday), the championship would definitely be fixed, regardless of the results of the Citizens.
Klopp also announced that the championship will be celebrated within the team as is currently allowed. But also announced a party with the fans as soon as this is possible again. 30 years without a championship title will soon be a thing of the past.
The only two slips in the current season Liverpool took away. Although the defensive on Anfield Road at home conceded more goals (twelve) than abroad (nine), Salah & Co have a bright white vest at home. The designated champion only missed a complete success at the guest appearance at Old Trafford (1-1 against Manchester United) and on Vicarage Road (0-3 against Watford).
The long preparation for the derby also helped Klopp to analyze games of SSC Napoli, Ancelotti’s ex-club. Liverpool does not want to leave anything to chance and aims for the 28th win in the 30th league game. The best odds for the victory in the duel between Everton and Liverpool were found at Betsson.
